Swimming Upstream

There is a lot going on in our world today.

My constant message from my guidance is to continue to work on myself.

As I pulled a card today for myself it appeared upside down. Two fish swimming in a stream. The intuitive words spoken, “swimming upstream.” That is the message of my current place in life. One shared by many.

It feels like there is a lot of work to be done, a lot to be done in the world. It feels like it is going to take a lot of effort to get to where I am going (and I thank God for my tools of divine guidance to spell it out a little clearer for me).

I don’t know a whole lot about fish and swimming upstream but curiosity led me to google and I came upon this beautiful post written by another fellow blogger that felt like it fit perfectly:


Based on what I read there it seems that in swimming upstream, we are working for the greater good. We are working for the next generations to come, of our children, and their children, and so on. We are working for the promise and hope of the future existing through the cycle of life and with the hope that it will be a beautiful life for them.

The underlying truth in “swimming upstream” is that the trials, challenges, and adversities we face are all with purpose as they solidify in the spiritual and earthly gifts we pass on to our children of the world. It is our personal investments in our self that we work to achieve but that will also be the achievements of our children. We are to lead their minds and their hearts in such a way that may be contrary to the “reality” of the chaotic outside world. We are to lead them to Peace, to Love, to Joy, and to Faith. And that is how we will ensure a bright future for our families to come, by creating it ourself. Traveling it as our own path and instilling it as truth for our families well-being.

Through human beings God’s message to the world is that, “love exists.”

Love exists…

Now, there is no evil in the world that can change that. So just keep on loving and keep on swimming upstream.

May God Bless You and Bless All Beings of Our World. Amen! ~Love Realized

Message for the day…

Look inside yourself; to heal the world.

Stoke the fire within and trust your intuition because new things are coming to you.

At this time it is so important to achieve balance between body, mind, and spirit. Your spirit is the one that can keep you in-check if you hold on to it and pay it attention.

In which area are you out of balance most? Is it your mind, your connect to your spirit, or your body?

Choose one simple thing to do today and take a step toward restoring inner balance and that peace in your life which radiates from the inside out.


For Body – Move your body more today, find time to dance, or drink more water.

For Mind – Adopt a mantra for the day and repeat it regularly in your mind. Example, “I am worthy.”

For Spirit – Send your spirit love. Take a centering breath, focus on the warmth you feel within your chest, and direct the words, “I love you” to it. Allow those words, “I love you,” to swirl and go wherever they need to go in healing your spirit.

You are cleansing yourself vibrationally by doing any of these things. And in the enjoyment of doing them you also open space within yourself that will welcome the quality of higher vibrating things to you.

A Reading for You, A Reading for All

I don’t know what to write today…

So for today I am pulling a card from The Enchanted Map Oracle Card deck by Colette Baron-Reid. My intention is for global consciousness to awaken and for the world to embody a peaceful being. This is what we need to know about our place in the process:

(When I shuffled 5 cards fell out! So it seems we are in a progression of things.)

Stuck in the Mud – Up to our knees in dense sticky situations. These make it hard for us to move around and yet with our own strength we are still capable of moving and getting ourself out of the sticky situation. A yellow canary sits upon our back showing us that there is hope and that there are easier ways to travel, like flying ;-). For now the canary (our spirit guides) travel with us, out of our sight but more and more we start to feel their presence and learn their ways as the skies of heaven clear above us.

Deep Freeze – Aspects of ourself have been frozen for quite some time but as I look at this card inverted I see that the ice is starting to thaw and that in fact even though our eyes are still shut our paw is reaching out and feeling the waters. Because of the placement of the card it shows that the direction to go in continuing with our own internal process of thawing our consciousness is to go up. This means go up to God. Meet him from where you currently stand and he will help your process by warming you from the inside out. Perhaps you can even feel this warmth within you now. Take a moment to notice if you are feeling a glowing inner warmth.

Rock Bottom – When you look at this card it appears that there is no way out but that is the wrong perception. It seems we have had the wrong perception for a long time. Rock bottom does not mean you have nowhere to go. Look at the card again. Rock bottom means you have multiple paths to choose from and that you have reached the depths of your decent. Notice that in the card there are four paths to take and all of them lead up and to you.

Field of Dreams – This card is inverted as well. The first thing my attention is drawn to is the moon, similar to the moon in the first card Stuck in the Mud. It is the same crescent shape but in this moon the magic of the moon is present. Even though it appears to be phasing if you take a closer look you can actually see the circular outline of it as a whole. This is the magic of the moon because even though sometimes it appears to be incomplete it is an illusion, the moon is always whole no matter how it looks.  The same is true for you. No matter how you may seem you are in truth always whole. And its link to the first card is that even in times when you feel stuck in the mud your completeness is still whole, even if you can’t see it. Intuitively I am also receiving that the sky is representing the mind and that the mental realm is what we are really grounding into right now as a species, the power of the mind to create our reality, such as the Law of Attraction. But notice there are eggs delicately being taken care of by elemental beings. In our ascension or opening to higher mental realms we must not forget who we have partnered with in getting here, the Earth and it’s elements, and elemental beings. What they show me next is that these eggs will crack like seeds. I see roots growing up from them into the green of the Earth from which a  more personal and intimate connection grows. This is because part of our opening and evolution is linking with respect and reverence to ourself and also to the Earth. The title of the card is appropriate Field of Dreams because it is still a dream, many are still sleeping. And if it is you that is still in dream land please don’t forget how well you have been taken care of while you slumber. Give thanks and that will help you on your path to waking up to the world that surrounds you and your awareness to it as well as your awareness to yourself.

Coming to Life – This card shows the final culmination of all paths traveled: being stuck with limited mobility; being frozen with no mobility or place to go; hitting rock bottom in where the only place left to go is up; and slumbering in the field of dreams where you are being taken care of with tender care and from where someday you will awake. This card represents awake and I love that it is called Coming to Life as if before this moment we had never really been alive or living. Perhaps we aren’t, at least to our full ability. This card shows us as a beautiful being rising to wholeness, taking a last step out of the brownish sand of all that you have transformed in being stuck, frozen, at rock bottom, and dreaming. There is a delicate lavender ribbon around your foot because it is like a dance, a back and forth sway as you keep your eyes closed and feel into your being. The transformation does not come in one fell swoop but it comes from a rocking back and forth between awake and asleep and paying more and more attention to your internal cues. Notice her eyes are still shut. That is because she does not look outside of herself for answers anymore. She has learned that all of her answers are within her. The ball of light represents her intuition and she holds it now. It is as physical a part of her as is her body that touches it and it is the mark of her own completeness. Notice also the yellow butterfly showing up at the foot of the girl in the image. This is the yellow guardian, like the canary in the first card, only this time it is pushing us through as we rise within ourselves to come alive for the first time as a true spiritual being embodying our self masterfully. Not so much aware and awake in our outward perceptions but most definitely awake in our inner knowing.

Wow, stuff got really deep there.

I want to thank the cards, their creators, and the divine wisdom that has been shared through them and I want to thank God.

These have been my impressions as I look at the cards with the set intention that I laid out before starting. Please take what resonates with you and leave the rest and please feel free to see what speaks to you as well in any of the images and share.

Infinity and the Rainbow

Infinity and the Rainbow… to me it sounds like a children’s story waiting to happen but for today they are two important signs being repeated in my life.

First of all, Infinity is the unending flow of life, your life. Death is an illusion; you never actually stop existing you just keep on going in a different form of reality and in a different way of living. There is life after death. You are infinite.

Second, a Rainbow is a sign of love from Heaven. It is also that which colors our world through water and light. We are water and light and in this divine concoction comes through the colors of our chakra system. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. And white the highest celestial vibration of light contains all the colors of the rainbow, as do we.

We are the rainbow and we are the infinite.

So why here and why now am I writing about this? I can tell you that I’m not quite sure. Just that they have both came up for me three times recently and intersect with today. Also, I know that in the world of using your intuition if something comes up three times you had better listen.

I can also tell you that I did have a different blog all ready to go but was getting the feeling to hang back with it and instead to write this one for you today.

Infinity Guitar

To break it down briefly, Infinity came up for me a little while back in transcribing my journals for my future memoir, it came up Tuesday night while doing a healing, and it came up yesterday as I received an unexpected gift in the mail of a beautiful locket from a very dear friend. In it was the Infinity symbol catching my eye right away, peaking my curiosity with such perfect timing, and eluding to something else yet unknown.

Rainbow came up for me last Friday when my son Gavin had his piano recital and another dear friend took a picture of him at the piano and in it there was an orb (a spirit caught on camera). Upon leaving the recital a beautiful rainbow shined across the sky and both Gavin and I knew that my Mom had been there with us. Then yesterday randomly I was inspired to write this:

So, I’ve been chasing a Rainbow for months, trying to achieve ultimate balance and being, and when I get to the end of the rainbow what do I discover but I’ve had the pot of Gold all along. The pot of gold I’ve been trying to chase down at the end of the rainbow has always been in me. It has always been with me. How silly of me to have been searching for it for so long – chasing all of the colors of the world all over when all along they all merged within me, the celestial rainbow, and here sits in my very skin and bones, my very own pot of gold, my soul. I am the pot of Gold… and I found myself.

And then this morning as I tiredly turned on the tv in our room for our 2-year-old to watch a show, Jake and the Never Land Pirates all too perfectly had a rainbow in it. At that point I thought to myself, “there’s that rainbow again.” A bit later in checking my email from yet another very dear friend and reading an Energy Forecast for June the rainbow pops up again as Emmanuel Dagher writes about “The Rainbow Effect.” It is at this point that I know I am supposed to write about this today. The sense comes through as a knowingness, a feeling, and a nudge from all that has been built-up and leads to this exact moment.

I don’t know what comes beyond it, but it just feels right.

A Word from My Grandfather

The other morning when I woke up my Grandpa Slanker’s image was in my mind. He was wearing a black and red flannel shirt and was just standing there. A little further into the morning I was driving my son to school. I gasped in awe as I spotted a yellow and orange vertical rainbow in the sky. “Have faith,” were the words I heard instantly. This refraction in the clear blue sky was a symbol and a message for me to have faith in my life despite the current pit of emotion I was finding myself in.

I dropped my son off and headed back the way I had come, looking to the sky for that sign again. It was gone. But then I felt my Grandfather’s presence and knew he had something to say. I listened and heard him cough and clear his throat like he used to do while sitting in his recliner, quiet and at peace smoking his pipe. Then I heard, “Don’t get carried away with the emotion. Stand still and silent in yourself. And have faith that the efforts you give will equal the returns you receive.”

You see, his presence was unexpected for me and his message even more so. I did not know him well in life and in spirit we are only re-acquainting. However, I really appreciate his words and his encouragement along with the big grin from my grandmother. I could see her standing behind him with her hand on his shoulder. I am much closer with her and have been communicating with her for some time now, so she is familiar to me. There was a knowingness that came forward from her to me letting me know that she had told him he should tell me himself, so I appreciate her role in this as well. This occurrence showed me that even though we were not close in life he does still take an interest in my life and a connection does exist. His message was well received.

I have struggles, just like everyone else, and recently I have been emotional with feelings of both anger and sadness bubbling up. I have been confused in figuring out just why I am having these feelings, why I have been so moody and emotional. There have even been times where I felt my heart threatening to close-up, shut-down, and shut-out, but I am certain that is not a good move. It helps no one, especially me, to cut myself off from my own life.

My grandfather apparently has been watching my struggles and had something to say. He was telling me to keep my heart open and just keep trying, commenting on the very thing I was struggling with. And just like the rainbow in the sky, he too was telling me to have faith.
